3/13/17 Group Watch: State School Board Holds Special Meeting

The state school board held a special work session last week to discuss financial matters. The meeting was called after board members received hundreds of phone calls and emails from constituents concerned about actions the State Superintendent had taken in recent days. Some board members have been critical of the superintendent’s “lack of communication” with them. Questions surfaced last week in the legislative contract review committee meeting about two contracts for more than $1.3 million for school intervention. The lack of further details prompted questions. Also, plans for a reorganization of the career tech and workforce development program were apparently leaked to the media last week before board members were briefed on the proposed plan.
